  • The Ideal Gas Law, Boyle's Law

    Gases, solids, and liquids are the three states that a substance can exist as. A gas does not maintain shape and volume. Gases expand to fit and fill the container. While a liquid maintains volume, but not shape and fits the shape of the container it is placed in. Solids can maintain both volume and shape. When a gas exerts force on the walls of a container, this is known as its pressure. Pressure varies based on temperature and volume. Many gas laws were used within this experiment, such as the Ideal Gas Law, Boyle’s Law, Charles’s Law, and Avogadro’s Law. The Ideal Gas Law is simply the combination of all the simple gas laws, Boyle’s Law, Charles’ Law, and Avogadro’s Law [which combines all of the properties of a gaseous sample].2 Boyle’s…

  • The Ideal Gas Law

    The Ideal Gas Law relates several variables of state of an ideal gas with the following equation: P V = n R T, where P is the pressure of the gas in atmospheres, V is the volume of the gas in liters, n is moles of the gas, and T is the temperature of the gas in Kelvin degrees. R is the ideal gas constant. The Ideal Gas Law is a combined summary of Boyle’s Law, Charles’s Law, and the Avogadro’s Law. This Law works best under low pressure, room temperature (298K) environments because these…

  • Natural Gas Impact

    However, natural gas is not a renewable or sustainable resource either. It also emits a decent amount of emissions. “Natural gas is composed primarily of methane (CH4) – a very potent greenhouse gas. During various steps of natural gas extraction, transportation, and processing, methane is released to the atmosphere” (“Natural Gas” n.d.). While most people focus on carbon dioxide when it comes to global warming and emissions, methane is actually “the second largest overall human generated…

  • Greenhouse Gas Pollution

    Greenhouse Gas Pollution in the United States Whether we like it or not greenhouse gas pollution is inevitably increasing in the United States; negatively affecting all of our daily lives. How many American citizens drive a car? Roughly 34 percent of the nation’s households own at least one car, and every-time a person drives it releases about 24 pounds of Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere. That is just one example of greenhouse gas pollution, and there are an innumerable amount of other…

  • Gas Chromatography Essay

    Chromatography is a separation method used to help identify mixtures. One common form of chromatography is gas chromatography. This type of chromatography will usually use a gas as the mobile phase, and a liquid as the stationary phase (“Gas Chromatography”). A gas chromatograph is comprised of some vital components, which include: the carrier gas, flow controller, injector port, column, column oven, detector, and recorder (“Gas Chromatography”). The purpose of this lab was for an unknown…

  • Fracking For Shale Gas

    Horizontal drilling, also known as, fracking is a method of drilling into Shale to extract gas. Shale gas is abundant in the United States, which could mean energy independence. The amount of natural gas in the United States is equivalent to two amounts of oil in Saudi Arabia's. However, this process raises concerns, health concerns in particular. The luxury of drinking water out of the tap has been taken away from communities where fracking has hit. The economic benefits of fracking do not…

  • Natural Gas Essay

    • Use of proper biodiesel blend in the engine approved by many automakers • Fuel economy and power of biofuel is less • Currently more costly • B100 is not use in low temperatures due to converting gel Natural Gas: natural gas like methane is cleanest burning alternative fuels. It can be used in the form of compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG). Application of CNG and LPG are automobile and cooking. Dedicated natural gas vehicles are designed to run on natural gas only,…

  • Gas Law Experiment

    NTRODUCTION In this experiment the validity of Gas Laws were observed and the relationship of two variables, temperature and volume, against pressure was tested. Gas Laws are encompassed by the Ideal Gas Law in which PV=nRT observes the general behavior of a gas under ideal conditions in terms of pressure(P), volume(V), moles of gas(n), gas constant(R), and temperature(T). The Ideal Gas Law is a combination of Boyle 's Law, Charles ' Law and Avogadro 's Law and was first introduced in 1834 by…

  • The Greenhouse Gas Effect

    ) The greenhouse gas effect is when sunlight warms the earth some of it is consumed which warms the ground and is reflected once again into space. The land and seas consume whatever remains of the sun’s energy. When the heat goes back towards space some of the heat is caught by greenhouse gasses in the air, making the earth temperature rise. Greenhouses gasses in the air absorb the heat and afterward divert some of this warmth back towards the Earth which means that the more greenhouse gasses in…

  • Ideal Gas Law Experiment

    A flask will be filled to its max capacity and then filled with that gas. After that, the ideal gas law will be used to find mm (the molecular mass of a substance). The equation will be changed to mm=gRT/PV instead of the usual PV=nRT. There are several gas laws exhibited in this experiment. Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures allows us to determine the pressure of the gas by subtracting the water vapor pressure from the total pressure of the flask. The total pressure would be the barometric…
